Cambridge Imprint is a small paper-making business in Cambridge, England, designing and printing patterned paper. We are known for our beautiful colours, our joyful illustration and typography, a lively, hand-drawn aesthetic, and meticulous attention to detail.
Cambridge Imprint is a design partnership of painter Claerwen James, textile artist Jane Powell and ceramicist Ali Murphy. We use simple hand-stencilled screen-printing to create our original designs, and spot-colour lithography to replicate that studio process in manufacturing the final paper product. The result is a matte paper of unparalleled intensity and clarity of colour.
Our influences are eclectic, but it has often been noted that our patterns have a particularly English quality, with a palette that is both sober and exuberant. We export paper all over the world, even to Kyoto in Japan, probably the world capital of beautiful patterned paper: an indication that we’re producing something with a very distinctive flavour. At recent design awards Katie Law of the Evening Standard called us ‘wholly original’ and ‘trend-free’.”
